New RIA in Martel’s project portfolio: TEADAL
On the 21st of September the activities of the TEADAL project kicked off with the first physical meeting of the consortium at Ubiwhere Headquarters in Aveiro, Portugal, to set pace with the plan of activities for the project, marking a new RIA in Martel’s project portfolio.
TEADAL stands for Trustworthy, Energy-Aware Federated Data Lakes Along the Computing Continuum. This European project is funded under the HORIZON-CL4-2021-DATA-01-01 call which has funded projects that create “technologies and solutions for compliance, privacy preservation, green and responsible data operations”.
Martel joins the project as a contributor towards many technical work-packages as well as leading the communication and dissemination work-package. For the communication and dissemination part, Martel’s media team is working towards the brand identity, brand awareness, communication and dissemination strategy and implementation. From a technical perspective, Martel Lab will be extending its open source self-aware data security tool to empower data owners and enable the creation of distributed data protection policies. Matel Lab contribution will also include context-aware machine learning operations as well as the support to pilots with continuous integration and infrastructure-as-a-code services.
The ambition of TEADAL, a new RIA in Martel’s project portfolio, is to provide key cornerstone technologies to create stretched data lakes spanning the cloud-edge continuum and multi-cloud, providing privacy, confidentiality, and energy-efficient data management. The TEADAL data lake technologies will enable trusted, verifiable and energy-efficient data flows, both in a stretched data lake and across a trustworthy mediatorless federation of them, based on a shared approach for defining, enforcing, and tracking privacy/confidentiality requirements balanced with the need for energy reduction.

The proposed stretched data lake, i.e., deployed in the continuum, will be based on an innovative control plane able to exploit all the controlled/owned resources, across clouds and at the edge, to improve data analysis.
Based on the fundamental research results of the academic partners TU Berlin (Germany), Politecnico Milano (Italy), and TU Wien (Austria) and contributions of the industry partners Ubiwhere (Portugal), Martel Innovate (Switzerland), Cybernetica (Estonia), Cefriel (Italy), IBM Israel (Israel), Marina Salud Sa (Spain), UITP (Belgium), AMTS Catania (Italy), Almaviva (Italy), Terraview GmbH (Switzerland), Ert Têxtil (Portugal), I2cat (Spain), Box2m Engineering (Romania) and Regione Toscana (Italy), a distributed data management system in the fields of medicine, Industry 4.0, finance, telecommunications, digital agriculture, and regional planning will be evaluated, implemented, and tested. This project, a new RIA in Martel’s project portfolio, started on Sept. 1, 2022 and lasts 3 years with a total funding volume of 10 million euros.
